“Craft cocktails” and “free-flow” are usually contradictory concepts but not at Manhattan. After all, the swanky bar reigns supreme on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2017 list. Forking out $150 nets you all the cocktails you want (well, wines and beers too) and free play in the Bloody Mary room that’s decked out with a mind-boggling array of condiments from crudites and bak kwa, to pickles and hot sauces.
The cocktails at brunch differ from the usual bar menu; they’re generally on the refreshing end of the spectrum (think seasonal bellinis, fizzes and sours), but that’s quite brunch-appropriate. The buffet spread reflects the bar’s American identity, down to the deli counter with freshly made bagels, cream cheese schmears and American cheeses. Among the highlights: shrimp cocktails and Maine lobsters, latkes with caviar, glazed cronuts and banana cream pie. And because it’s Manhattan, there’s also negroni creme brulee and margarita dome.
From $150 per adult, available Sundays, 11.30am-3.30pm.
